YA author Tina Kakadelis (she/her) chats with us about why she specifically chooses to write queer stories, the tropes we hate, and the beauty of rom coms. Jenn has us deliberate how to make YA gay(er). CJ creates Maze Boy.
Wow, it's been almost a year since we started this! Jeez, a lot of stuff has changed about our identities in that time! Woof, we finally need to address that! CJ talks about being androgyne. Jenn leads us on her Gender Journey still in progress.
Author Olivia Hill (she/her) chats with us about her upcoming book "Ultra", real-life allegories in fiction, and how the sky is gay now. The three of us create an augmented reality game.
Ross (he/him) from the podcast "Kidflix" talks to us about the many uses of Grindr (apparently not just dating!), teaching kids that being gay is cool, and celebrity crushes. Jenn calls on Ross & CJ to make a new children's TV show.
Game Master and fellow podcaster Jeff (he/him) chats with us about role-playing games and why they're so great for queer people (except when they're not). Jenn leads a very-mini campaign.
Philadelphia director, playwright, and actor Josh Hitchens (he/him) chats with us about marriage, divorce, theater, and more. Jenn and Josh chat about classic horror characters and how queer they (probably) are.
Our first-ever live show, starring Philly drag performer Eric Jaffe (pronoun flexible)! They sing us a song and tell us about butts. The Queer Congress assembles and takes suggestions from the audience.
Kelsey (they/them) from Gayta Science talks about their three-year study on their genderfluid identity. CJ has a new name and isn't talking about it. Jenn becomes a camp counselor.
See Kelsey's research at: www.gaytascience.com!
Welcome into the queer world, baby-gay Taylor (she/her)! (This baby metaphor already got weird.) We talk with Taylor about her recent discovery of her queer identity, how she found her label, and if our show will ever get sponsors. Jenn leads us in a Buzzfeed quiz.
Trigger warning: Sexual assault
Gotta come clean, our schedules got real busy and we couldn't interview someone this fortnight. But we also have news about our very first live show! And Jenn graces us with her musical art.
We hope you remember how to spell her name, because you'll only ever hear it again at the start of her stand-up acts! Marrianne (she/her) chats with us about feeling new to the queer community, The High School Experience, and dressing queer. Jenn asks us to make some bi-centric evaluations.
Harrison (he/him) chats with us about the changes testosterone bring, "going stealth", and what horror film he will claim on behalf of the queer community. Jenn proposes some new agenda items.
Journey with us into the futuristic world of sci-fi with your queer space captain Jared Axelrod (she/her)! That's right, it's our sci-fi episode. Jared chats with us about her experience as a transgender woman, including transitioning "late", bathrooms, and gender presentation.
Jenn and Christina try desperately to accept a cisgender heterosexual, Asia (she/her), into their hearts. It's a struggle, but just like Macklemore said...nope, sorry, we can't even quote him facetiously. We talk about straight allyship 101, ask the weird questions queer people get, and plan a Straight Pride Parade.
Know that relatable feeling where you tell yourself you're cis, but you're definitely not at all? If you don't, Joan (she/her) has you covered! We chat about queer liberation, life as a transgender woman, and the problematic nature of RuPaul. Joan and CJ go shopping in another round of Gay In The Life.
CJ’s younger sister Rachel (she/her) is here! We talk about balancing being religious and queer, the Kinsey Scale, and the Gay Train that's actually several of those big boardwalk bikes tied together.
Our new friend Polly (she/her) owns a gym dedicated to helping queer folks people in all bodies love themselves and do some sick lifts. Is that what they're called? Jenn and CJ have a lot of gym vernacular to learn.
We chat with Megan (they/them) about misgendering, the absurdity of gender roles being pushed on kids, and Twilight. Megan performs their interpretation of a day in the life of a queer person (as speculated by a straight person).
CJ and Jenn catch up with our college friend, Zach (he/him), a cisgender bisexual man who identified as gay in the past. We chat about politics (boo) and take a Buzzfeed quiz (yay!).
We talk with musician Jessie (she/her) about Queer Imposter Syndrome, being badgered about threesomes, and the Ukulele Peacock that appears to all bisexual femmes. Jenn leads a game of Queer Jeopardy.
